On Saturday, Zoey and her team took the cooking outside for a sizzling Gluten Free BBQ at The Apple Tree Restaurant. With sausages and burgers aplenty, the Coeliac UK Dorchester Group was in attendance to offer information and there was no shortage of gluten free tasters to sample. We were blessed with blue skies and the raffle raised around £80 for the Coeliac UK Dorchester Group.

Before we say goodbye to summer, our free gardening talks also begin this week, with the first looking at beetles, bugs, spiders and slugs. The free talks all begin at 2:30pm and will take place at Brimsmore Gardens on Tuesdays, Poundbury Gardens on Wednesdays and Castle Gardens on Thursdays, every week until 1 October.
